ABC Wednesday - U!

Got your dictionary out? You ready to play with the letters? It's that time again! ABC Wednesday is hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt and the ABC team: Denise, Annelie, Leslie, Nathalie, Joyce, Donna, Helen, Roger, Troy, Jay, Barb, Gattina and me!
Uh-huh! It's the U Day!! Doesn't matter if you're an Ugly American on a Unicycle or an Ugly Duckling with an Ulterior motive! It may be an Unappealing letter, but we owe it the Ultimate opportunity! We may be Uncertain of the outcome, but we don't need an Umpire to tell us what we need! We're not flying around in a UFO or stumbling around in the Underbrush! No time to go Undercover or Underwater for that matter. Grab your dictionary, go to the U page and get busy! The Ultimate day will be here before you know it! Ah, it's here!! And here are my Us for the day! U is for Underbrush, Umpire, Unique Ugly-cute Duckling ( and, yes, I actually think he's adorable, too) and Umbrella!

Except for the Underbrush, the rest of the photos are courtesy of the magnificent GOOGLE!

Great U words! I think it a difficult letter and I am always glad to find a word starting with the letter of the week. Have a great ABC Wednesday!

George said...

Once again you've done a wonderful job with ABC Wednesday. You've shown us some great 'U' pictures and have shared some wonderful 'U' words.

Fun take on the letter U and though the duckling may be ungainly I find it adorable.

cloudbusting2 said...

A ceiling full of umbrellas is a good idea. I would like to see that too.

Nanka said...

'U' for Uh-huh! and an Unappealing letter, that's my thought too!!

Roger Owen Green said...

I don't think the duckling's ugly either, but good selections.

Francisca said...

I think you are Unbelievably amazing at stringing those U words together! Thumbs up, Sylvia!

RuneE said...

I quite agree - there isn't any Ugly ducklings, and this one was most certainly not!

EG Wow said...

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. :) I think the duckling is very cute.

Denise said...

Wonderful choices for this meme today Sylvia.

You found some awesome U shots. Love the little "ugly duckling". I think he is really cute- not ugly.

Janie said...

Love the ugly duckling. He's really kind of cute.

Gigi Ann said...

I think the Duckling is a cUtie with a capital U. Great choices for U day.

Naturedigital said...

Love the Ugly duckling Under the Underbrush.
The Umbrellas are beautiful and colorful and the Umpires I hope will reach a Unanimous decision.
have a great day Sylvia.

You have made some great choices for U, Sylvia, and picked the ultimate in photos to represent them, - love the Ugly duckling, - he looks quite curious and a little ruffled.

Leslie: said...

Love your choices this time around! :D Have a wonderful week.

Mar said...

Love the not-ugly duckling!!!
U is for...

Ann said...

I like the duckling, when I go to my Western Springs, and see the singnets, I always think of the Ugly Duckling story.

Joy said...

Who would be an umpire when making the wrong decision, they would probably like to hide in the underbrush. Another great collection of words; the umbrellas almost look as though they are floating.

Tumblewords: said...

Good for U! I love the collage - dUcklings are 'dorable and the Umbrellas are luscious!

Beverley Baird said...

Oh Sylvia - that wee duck isn't ugly - he's utterly u-dorable!
Great choices for U!
Take care.

Birgitta - foto CHIP said...

Have a nice week Sylvia!

Pam said...

Wanda said...

"U" did it again... Wonderful U choices. He is a cute little "ugly" duckling. Those umpires can really get into it can't they. What a fun post!!

All very perfect 'U's for today Sylvia! especially the duckling, so sweet.
Have a great day friend.

Serline said...

Tough one to call... umpires or ugly ducklings? Both are delightful as representations of "U"...

Jedediah said...

Love the not so-ugly duckling. The umpire made me think of this Bugs Bunny cartoon

Louis la Vache said...

YoU oUtdid yoUrself, Sylvia!

;-D

Cheryl said...

Unbelievable!

Paula Scott said...

Those are cute ducklings! The umpire look as though they are about to kiss (don't tell them that though). Love the red umbrellas too!

jabblog said...

Great selection of Us, Sylvia. I like the umbrellas - they look as though they're part of some decorating scheme. (Mind you, I wouldn't like the dust and spiders they'd harbour . . . )

James said...

Great U's and perfect photo choices! :)

Cildemer said...

A very nice entry for U day!
Love your collage and the Ugly-cute duckling;o)

Have a beautiful week, Sylvia****

Sally in WA said...

I like the umpire arguing. Reminds me of Lou and his "talks" with some of them. :)

Jingle said...

your creativity is amazing,
keep it up.
Happy ABC Wednesday.

Jay said...

The umpires and the umbrellas are my two favourites! They are so different but both are such great shots!

Jama said...

Unique collages!

Anna said...

Great collection of U-words! Not an easy letter.
Best wishes,
